Warwickshire Road Race League (WRRL) Announce New Website

Warwickshire Road Race League (WRRL) News

It is impossible for us to reach every athlete in the County so please distribute this mail to your Members who are interested in road running.
(1)  New dedicated web site for the League
We am pleased to tell you that the WRRL now has its own web site. To reach it, go to the County web site at www.WarwickshireCountyAA.co.uk and click on “Road Race League” on the left hand side, or you can go directly to http://tinyurl.com/69lzecc
Please build a link to it into your Club web sites.
The site has a lot of information about how the League works and what it offers in terms of races and prizes. Once the League gets underway it will also show you the points scores for every athlete and every team after every race so you can see how you are performing.
Many thanks to Richard Carney for setting up the new site.
(2)  New scoring system.
We have developed what we hope will be an efficient scoring system which should help us put up to date League scores on the web site much quicker than was possible in the past. Even so we will be reliant of the race promoters giving us an electronic copy of their results as soon as possible after the race.
Many thanks to Mike Ellis who set up the new system and to Sean Lonergan and Richard Broooks (his colleagues at Spa Striders) who will operate it this year.
Mick Petch, who has produced the results single handed for the past ten years, will use his extensive knowledge of the League to audit the new system.
(3)  Updated calendar of races
We have attached an updated calendar of races for the current 2011 season. There are two date changes. The Rugby 10 mile race is scheduled for October 23rd and the Kenilworth Half Marathon has moved to 4th September (to generously accommodate the Coventry City Council Half Marathon). You can also download a copy of the calendar from the new web site.
The first race is the Regency Run which is already sold out. If you have missed the boat but would like to run let one of us (Geoff Wheeler or Ray Morgan) know immediately.
The second race is the Northbrook 10k for which we have attached an entry form.
Full details are available on the Club web site at www.NorthbrookAC.org.uk
The third race is the Two Castles which is also already sold out. If you have missed the boat on this one use the event web site to add yourself to the waiting list which will be reviewed nearer the race date. Do NOT contact us directly about it.
(4)  What next
The 2011 season gets underway on Sunday 10th April with the Regency 10k. The first of nine league races. Please do your utmost to get your club members to enter as many races as they can. Promoting clubs deserve their support and previous results clearly indicate that the clubs with the most runners usually do well in the team competitions.  

So why not circulate the league calendar around your membership giving them plenty of time to get their entries in.

We hope to generate as much interest as we can by keeping the new scoring system up to date on the website where your members can clearly see their positions in the league.

Good luck to everyone and may the best woman/man/teams win.

Geoff Wheeler – Chairman Warwickshire Road Race League

Colin Kirkham’s Marathon Trudge

2010 London Marathon

London Marathon 2010

You may be aware that two years ago I organised a marathon in Coventry which was run in 5 stages, part of the profit made was given to two charities for disabled children … well now I am trying something different. Refer to


I am giving away my London Marathon medal, my t-shirt, foil blanket, runners bag etc.. To win the one of your choice you have to guess my finishing time!!! Oh yes, and you have to donate £1 for every guess.

Either donate to Just Giving/ Tim Tims Children Centre or Just Giving / Newlife.

Tiny Tims is a local Coventry charity providing free physiotherapy for disabled children, Newlife is a national charity providing equipment for disabled kids.

Never before have I asked to be sponsored …  but my suffering would appreciate a bit of support.
